What’s An Infographic? By Bernard Marr

Slide 1

An Infographic is basically an artistic representation of data and information using different elements such as: graphs, pictures, diagrams, narrative, timelines, check lists, etc.

Slide 2

Infographics allow us to tell a more complete story of the data and are more engaging than most traditional ways of communicating data and information. The focus of good Infographics is always on communicating insights

Slide 3

Here are some examples of graphical elements that you might find on an Infographic

Slide 4

Use engaging visualisations but keep the focus on the message, not the artistic greatness.

Slide 5

Maps and flow-charts are great additions to any Infographic.

Slide 6

Key is to translate the raw data in easy to use visualisations
